Another World (Another World Trilogy, First Book)

I admit it. I, Serena Beckett, am a super duper die-hard 1D fan! But I'm writing this to tell you about my summer with my friends, Bella Townsend, Gemma Jenkins, Vala Williams and Abby Henderson...my summer that was so bizarre and breathtaking that none of my other friends would believe me. My summer with One Direction.

3. The Airport

Bella's P.O.V

The taxi cab pulled up at the airport. I looked at my friends eagerly. They all gave me that look that my dog Jess gives me when she wants a treat. We all got out of the taxi. Julia paid the taxi driver, and he replied with "Thanks, Madam. I'll get your luggage out of the trunk now." And with that he carried our bags on to the pavement, each of them packed full to the brim. We entered the airport lobby, and checked in. I looked at our tickets. 12:30 we had to board. "Julia, what time is it...?" I asked. She unlocked her phone. "Shit!" she cursed. It was 12:25. We looked at each other. "RUN!!!" Suddenly there was a mad rush to the boarding area. Once we got there, we showed the lady our tickets. She looked about 20, with bright candy floss pink hair, and a piercing in her nose. She noticed me staring, and smiled kindly. She took our tickets and a stewardess came out to show us the way. We went through a huge corridor that had glass windows instead of walls. I looked down and saw that the corridor was outside, and attached to the airport. It was above the ground. I shuddered at the thought of being up so high, I hated heights. I decided to move as quickly as possible to the plane. It was best that I didn't look out the window in the plane either, just to be safe. The girls tried to keep up with me, understanding my situation. The stewardess stopped at the entrance to the plane, and smiled a big, cheesy, plastic grin, allowing us to go through first. She looked like Barbie. But without the pointy boobs. Although....ugh. I shook that thought out of my head straight away. We entered the plane. There were two rows of seats going through the plane. I decided to sit next to Abby, Vala and Serena sat together, and Gemma sat alone because she had airplane sickness and always get crabby on planes. We sat down. Abby turned to me. "Bella, tell me something. Promise you won't let that jerk Ashley hurt you again. Please find another boy this summer who treats you properly." I hesitated, not knowing what to say. Then  I had an idea. "Look who can talk! You haven't had a boyfriend since Callum, captain of the football team! Remember what he did to you?!" She looked hurt. "Look, I didn't mean it like that. How about we make a deal, to find a boy this summer who likes us for who we are, not because they think we would put out or something." Abby sighed. "Fine. I'll text the other girls with the details" She texted them, while I flicked through a magazine. This was gonna be a good summer this time, I decided.

Gemma's P.O.V

I sat alone. I always get crabby and I didn't want to take it out on my friends. Serena learnt the hard way. My phone bleeped. A text from Abby came up

Me and Bella have made a deal. Find a boy this summer who likes you for who you are. You have to sign the contract we are making when we get to the resort:) I suddenly had a flashback. Oh, it would be hard finding a boy that likes me. Especially after last time, with Ben...No, I wasn't gonna think about him. This summer was about me. And my happiness. Not him. I decided that this year was gonna be the best.

Vala's P.O.V

 "So, I want to ask you something." I turned to face Serena. "Sure, you can ask me anything, you know that." She looked unsure. "Well, I was hoping you would...maybe...I dunno...find a boy this summer.....?" She froze. She looked straight past me. I sighed. This was gonna be hard. "Listen, Serena. I know this is very hard for you. Especially with your dad, and--" "Don't say his name ever again on this side of the grave." She interrupted in a trembling voice. I sighed yet again. "No. We have been going on about this for too long. I know what Jake did to you and I swear I will hunt him down like a dog if he ever tries to do that again. Jake Adams is a monster. You've been hurt once. Don't let him get to you again." She winced when I said Jake's name. I looked at her neck, at the scar that went across her throat. I remember when I found her in that dark alleyway, with no clothes. She had been cut almost everywhere, but that cut was the worst of them all. She was lying in her own blood. She could of died. I couldn't bare the thought of my best friend...like that. Used and abused. Serena attempted to cover it up, I said, "You don't have to hide it anymore." I glared at her. She got her iPod out of my pocket and turned on 'I Wish'. She started to fall asleep. I sighed, noticing how peaceful she looked. When Jake was around, she had great big dark bags under her eyes. Those had cleared up now, and she looked as beautiful as ever. But she didn't dare to go into the water, because of her scars. It was such a shame, because she was absolutely amazing at swimming. She was even better at Latin and salsa dancing. Suddenly my phone pinged. It was a text from Abby.

We all need to make a deal. To find a boy this summer who likes us for who we are. You need to sign the contract when we get to the resort:) 

That was gonna be hard, especially for Serena. I have had my own boy problems too. Reece....Serena's phone pinged. I read the text from Bella.

Listen, I know it's gonna be really hard,but please find a boy this summer:)

That was gonna be hard, especially for Serena. I replied with:

Serena's asleep. I already told her that. I think she needs advice like this to get her out of that trance that Jake put on her.

 I haven't told anyone about Reece but it sure isn't something I would spill out soon. But this summer was gonna be brilliant and boy-filled. For us, and Serena.
